Society Experience

Celebrating exceptional individuals impacting the AHA’s mission


In 2018, the collective impact of our more than 6,000 Cor Vitae Society members giving through local events and other mission-aligned initiatives was over $78 million.

In addition to celebrating our annual donors through the Cor Vitae Society, the AHA proudly recognizes Paul Dudley White Legacy Society members for leaving a gift through their estate plan. Many are members of both societies knowing their support is making a difference today and in years to come.

Our members support scientific advances, community health education programs, and advocacy and outreach efforts.
